    I originally posted this in an existing thread but did not get any reponse so I am starting a new thread for this:

    We have 4 calendar control per row in a radGrid.
    Performance is extremly slow (as mentionned by Telerik as there is alot of rendering for these controls), we went back to our old calendar control, BasicDatePicker, and performance has improved drastically.

    However we are having issues with the Javascript associated with the BasicDatePicker.

    1) The javascript associated with the control doesn't fire (looks like the javascript call is being intercepted by a radControl

    2) If we include their .js files in the Telerik:RadScriptBlock it errors out when calling the BasicDatePicker javascript indicating that BasicDatePicker is undefined.

    How can I use a third party control that has it's own javascript associated with it in a radGrid.

    Hi Alex,

    Having many date pickers on a page might render too much HTML and impact performance.  RadDatePicker instances can share a RadCalendar control and use it to pick dates.

    Please find attached a sample web application that demonstrates the needed approach.

    Thank you for your reply.

    We will reinvestigate this solution, we had already tried this and it was working fine except on 1 client machine.

    I will let you know of it is successful.
